Ok I have used it many times- but now F11 does not open or close "reading view" on either of my machines, anyone else with this issue?

Very odd... some keyboards have a button that changes the function keys from F1-F12 to a secondary set of preset functions... On mine it's a red FN button between Ctrl and Alt... haven't pressed anything like that?

Nope and I double checked to make sure I wasn't hitting it in error.

It has ceased to work on either of my machines Hmm

Do you have an F-lock key on your keyboard?  Sometimes I accidentally hit mine and turn it off, but I doubt that is your problem if it is occuring on two machines.  Just thought I would mention it, just in case...

Both Firefox and IE use F11 for their Full Screen mode: can you double-check with one of those programs and see if F11 does what it's supposed to there? If Firefox listens to F11 and Logos doesn't, that would be strange indeed ...

I have not been able to use F11 in IE either- I was using this before with no problem til SR6.

Were there some type of changes made, that could have effected F11?

two questions:

Are you on a laptop or a desktop?

What model of keyboard are you using? (if you are using a keyboard other then a laptop keyboard, flip it over and the model should be on there)

ahhh...thought so I had a microsoft keyboard and hated this feature. They are designed to switch between different functions of the F keys.

try hitting this button (assuming I have the right keyboard). It's either this one or one of the two to its left.

Don't feel dumb. That little button was a thorn in my flesh every time I used my keyboard :-)

That's called an F-lock on my Microsoft keyboard...
